Description

A woman faces life-changing decisions in post-World War I London. In Daughter of the House, Rosie Thomas returns to the marvelous Wix family. Nancy Wix, daughter of the stage impresarios Eliza and Devil, must find a way to keep London's Palmyra theatre afloat, and to entertain audiences who have lost husbands and sons in the First World War. Nancy is a born performer, but she is set apart-even from her beloved brothers-by her psychic gifts. She must harness her troubling powers to keep her family and the theatre intact. It is a dangerous path and a lonely one, but Nancy's bold choices lead her to love, and to the recognition of what it takes to become a modern woman. As another war begins to threaten the world, she is forced into a final, fateful confrontation with her demons, and must marshal both her ingenuity and her mysterious talents to fight for the survival of friendship, independence, and family.
